What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18,000 BTU works great cools well I have been running this unit for periods of up to 6 days straight in the 93+ temp with 85-90% humidity. The energy feature is great and works well. I have it cooling a space of 900 sq ft and it will maintain the set temperature of 73 just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it Its a cooling & heating unit that rotates. Can't wait to see what is does during the winter months. Hoping it can cut my gas bill down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for kitchens and large rooms I bought 2 of these air conditioners-one for large living room and one for kitchen. They were easy to install and have done the job I bought them to do. Especially nice during 100 degree days. They are a little noisy, but I don't mind because they keep me cool!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cool/Heat Window Unit; Great Value Purchased this LW1812HR air conditioner from our local Home Depot to replace a 15yr old unit located in our garage. Like many homeowners, the garage has become more a shop and storage area than a room for our cars. When we do woodworking, painting, staining, and polyurethaning having a moderate temperature and humidity is a must, so the Cooling AND Heating capability of this unit is fully utilized. This LW1812HR is super-quiet; you have to listen closely to hear the compressor kick in. It comes with a remote control which we will probably have no use for, but it is a nice plus feature. This is an Excellent Large window air conditioner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had less than a month and already problems. Bought and installed this on July 1. By July 15 the "Energy Saver" mode quit working right - the fan would kick off and never come back on. Tried to schedule a warranty repair online and could not because the "Direct Care" feature isn't currently available. If I am able to get service scheduled through Customer Service, and the unit is repaired, I may re-evaluate my rating. At this point, though, I would hesitate to purchase another LG product.
